I heard cottage chesse is great to eat right before bed but I notice it has 20% daily allowance of sodium and I need 2 servings (40%) to get up to 26g of protein. Granted I eat more than the 2,000 calorie daily allowance but is that a lot of sodium to dump in my body at once?

Maybe if you dump it in all at once, you'll pee it out faster. FWIW, I often eat a can of Chunky Soup, coming in at 1400-1600mg.

I think the sodium bit is waaaaaay overplayed. It's really not a big deal

if you have hypertension or other kidney issues, then sodium can be important to monitor
